Brain & Head Injury
Our Most Vital Organ: The Brain
The most intricate organ in the human body is the brain. This three-pound organ serves as the brain's seat of intellect, the body's primary movement controller, the senses' interpreter, and the source of thought. The brain, which is covered in a fluid that serves as protection and lies inside a bone shell, is where all the characteristics that make us human start.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
A brain injury can have a profound impact on not just the victim but also the rest of the family. Also, the cost of treating a brain injury's medical complications can be high. You should make sure that the compensation you receive for your injuries accounts for the cost of ongoing medical care and requirements because the effects of a brain damage frequently last a lifetime.
Signs Of Brain Damage
Brutal strikes, jolts, and skull penetration frequently cause traumatic brain injuries. Brain function may be impaired either temporarily or permanently.
Traumatic brain injury symptoms can include:
Nausea or vomiting
Tiredness or dizziness
Problems with speech or memory
Loss of consciousness
Types of Brain Injuries
What is a brain injury? Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a swift, external physical attack harms the brain. It is one of the leading causes of death and disability in adults. TBI is a general term that encompasses a wide range of brain ailments. Damage to the brain may be localized (restricted to a single location) or broad (which happens in multiple places on the brain). A brain injury's severity can range from a minor concussion to a serious one, leaving a victim in a coma or even death.
Causes Of Brain Injuries
Head injuries are generally categorized into two groups. Both head injuries from shaking and head injuries from impacts to the head occur.
A hit to the head frequently results in head injuries that:
Your skull will typically shield your brain from significant injury. Yet, spinal injuries can also result from trauma severe enough to injure the skull.
Compensation For Brain Injury Victims
Most brain injuries are catastrophic, which makes for solid evidence in personal injury lawsuits. A case with a significant life-altering injury will be worth more than one with a small one since the value of a case directly relates to the types of damages sustained. Your case may be worth a considerable sum if the brain damage you or a loved one suffered led to thousands of dollars in medical expenses, rehabilitative therapies, short- or long-term disability, decreased quality of life, or lost wages. All of these damages and more can be recovered with the help of your attorney.
